37 inch 3D LED Smart TV 1080p HD Freeview HD

Featuring Panasonic's new IPS LED panel with passive 3D, the Panasonic TXL37ET5 looks set to be an impressive TV.


The big news with Panasonic's latest 3D LED TVs is the adoption of passive 3D TV. While this doesn't give the ultimate resolution of active 3D TV, it does have many other benefits. With the glasses being much simpler and not requiring batteries, they're also far cheaper. This means that Panasonic supply four, rather than the more usual zero to two pairs. They're also lighter, more comfortable and less prone to flicker that can cause headaches. With 3D TV being this comfortable for the whole family to watch, you can make the most of the 2D to 3D conversion system that lets you watch any program in 3D!


Whether it's 2D or 3D you're watching, you'll not fail to be impressed by the quality of the Panasonic TX-L37ET5 screen. The new panel has faster processing and a wider viewing angle. Combined with the faster processing is a new 300Hz backlight scanning system that helps deliver smooth motion - this is especially noticeable with fast moving sports events where the action stays focused throughout. Finally, the 'Brilliant' contrast ratio is just that with deep blacks, bright whites and vivid colours all combining to make the picture one of the most natural in its class.


In addition to offering a superb picture quality, the Panasonic TXL37ET5 also offers good sound quality. Although no match for a separate home cinema system, the V-Audio Surround system creates a spacious sound. There is also an optical digital audio output; allowing you to easily improve the sound quality via a home cinema system.


When it comes to connecting up, the TXL37ET5 is one of the best Panasonics yet. Featuring a built-in Freeview HD tuner, the TX-L37ET5 is ideal for making the most of High Definition TV. VIERA Connect brings together a host of features that make this much more than 'just' a TV. Stream video, photos and music from another source, such as your PC, via DLNA. Alternatively, use the Application-based browser to view shopping based functions, social media Apps and catch-up TV channels. New to this model is a web browser and media player. Use one of the three USB or SD card inputs and enjoy music from many formats via the dedicated media player.

With such a comprehensive networking ability, it's good to see that the TXL37ET5 gives you the choice of connecting by either Ethernet or the built-in wi-fi - no extra dongle required.

If all this wasn't enough, the Panasonic TXL37ET5 looks sleeker than previous models and can now be considered to be amongst the most elegant in its class.

For a classic all-rounder, the Panasonic TXL37ET5 has every base covered.
